cbs5 exclusive. don? >> reporter: in san francisco where cars are stolen every day there has to be an easier way than going off a roof and sliding down a rope but as it turns out, sliding down the rope wasn't the riskiest part. sometime between midnight and 7:00 a.m. today someone dropped into this san francisco dealership literally and drove off in a $200,000 lamborghini like this. it wasn't your ordinary car theft, it was more like a car heist the thief leaving behind his mountaineering gear. he or she made his way over the rooftop, secured a climbing rope and repelled to a window, broke it and entered the building. inside the dealership the thief settled on a yellow and black lamborghini which just happens to be owned by celebrity sell a celebrity chef. a publicist for the chef
6:01 pm
confirmed yes indeed the lamborghini belonged to him. he drove the car through the garage door, cut the lock and disappeared into the night. bringing to mind an action film like the one with nicolas cage. this man sells racing cars and says it won't be easy getting away with a lamborghini with a bumble bee paints job. >> there are a lot of forums where people love to comment on this kind of thing and love to feel like they are involved. if they if they were to catch somebody. the news will be out. it will be popular information. people will have their eye out for it. >> reporter: doubting anyone will want to chop up the car, suggesting they will try to get it out of the country. >> there is very few motors and transmissions and body parts running around. to market those parts unless
6:02 pm
they have somebody that is already ready to receive them and they worked out a deal is probably the riskiest part of the whole transaction for the thief. >> reporter: so the toughest part of the job lies ahead getting rid of the car making some money and not going to jail. >> someone is going to talk. al and i were talking it is a recipe for disaster. someone will talk. don knapp in san francisco. don't you think, don? >> reporter: yes, i certainly do think so someone will talk if they see the car but as we have been told they may have already sold that car somewhere overseas. >> don knapp, thank you. a potentially deadly danger propertying one city to send an owner to pet owners tonight. bait boxes containing rat poison have been discovered at a dog park. len ramirez has the details. >> reporter: allen, dog owners here are very upset about this because as you mentioned this happened not once but on two separate occasions that rat poison was spread out on the
6:03 pm
dog park in sunnyvnyvale. the first on february 15 and then a second incident on february 26. in both cases rat poison was used and whoever left it behind here wrote a message on the rat poison box that said "all dogs must die." >> just commercial off the shelf rat poison like you would find at a hardware store. one box was left here within the park area itself. the other box was left in the entryway where there are two gates and all people and dogs have to go through to get into the park and in both cases some of the rat poison had been distributed oned ground. >> i obviously don't like it because i have two dogs of my own and children at the park running around and think it is horrible that someone that does not like dogs would do such a horrible thing. >> reporter: this is obviously a potentially fatal situation for dogs especially small dogs. i talked to the owner of a very large newfoundland who was one
6:04 pm
of the first people to report this incident, allen, and he said his dog did get sick and was throwing up on a couple of occasions, had to take it to the vet and get him checked out. he doesn't know for sure if the dog was one of the dogs that got rat poison into his system or not but said it is very suspicious. anyone with information asked to call the sunnyvale department of animal safety or and safety. >> thank you, len. tonight we are getting a look at a deadly knight at a san jose bar and three people died in what investigators believe was a failed kidnapping attempt in january. kiet do on why police are releasing the footage now. >> reporter: it is fairly unusual for the san jose police department to release such graphic footage but they say the man in the video is dangerous and they have to do everything they can to find him. that includes asking the public for help. the footage begins with a gunman chasing the owner of the
6:05 pm
mexicala club on january 8th in an attempted kidnapping. the owner stumbled and falls over tables and gunman walks him out and puts the owner in a headlock. they struggle past the performance stage and continue towards the back door and once outside the owner breaks free and tries to make a run for it but the gunman chases him down around the corner and opens fire. here is a closeup view. shooting. the owner actually survived by the gunman and get away driver are still on the run. >> he will hurt somebody else sometime in the future. >> obviously this person has already demonstrated his propensity for violence on the tape and this is the kind of person we don't want on the streets. >> reporter: here is one more look at the gunman. that is him on the right wearing a grey bullet proof vest and might be fleeing to southern california or mexico. now, the get away driver is hector mia perez santana.
6:06 pm
if you have any information san jose police want you to give them a call. so before all of this hatched on the vip there videotape there was a hail of gunfire where three people died. two were the attacker. one was some kind of body guard that was a friends of the friend of the owner of the club. >> kiet do in san jose. thank you. two oakland police officers who sat and killed a barber shop ownler not be charged. the officers were flagged down by a woman who said derek jones had tried to strangle her. the officers said that jones ignored repeated demands that he surrender and they shot him because he appeared to be reaching into his waist band for a weapon. no weapon was found and an investigation found that witnesses confirm the officer's account of the incidents. the man accused in a mall fire that caused more than $50 million in damage in roseville pleaded guilty today. he faced two federal counts of
6:07 pm
arson. ano one was hurt. in exchange for the guilty plea he will receive a 10-year sentence. governor brown self-imposed budget deadlines two days away. still no budget deal. republicans are holding firm to their demand for reforms and no tax extensions. five senate republicans wrote to the governor saying they were at an impasse because governor brown refused to budget on reforms. one of the five, a senator, dodged questions and the governor didn't say much either. >> when is a time we can talk? >> later on this arf afternoon call my office. >> did you read the letters yesterday? >> i say we should let the people vote. that's democracy. >> the sticking point seems to be that the republicans do want reforms but no tax extensions and the governor wants a ballot measure with tax extensions. how do voteers feel about it?
6:08 pm
voters feel about it. 47% responding say yes, let the voters decide on tax extensions. 35% said no. 18% are not sure. and, of course, there are many groups watching closely to see what kinds of cuts there will be. along those watching most closely, parents who worry what the budgets will mean to school budgets already cut to the bone. mark sayre in san jose with what schools can expect from this new budget. mark? >> reporter: allen, all parents can really do at this point is wait and watch and see what happens in sacramento but one thing is for sure they are uniformally concerned about any more cuts to registration. >> 30 kids in your class. is that a lot of kids? >> yes. >> reporter: this 7-year-old girl may have a big first grade class but she loves school. >> the most i like about my school, my teacher is really you a system. >> reporter: she awesome. >> reporter: part of the san jose unified school district. >> yes, i do i think voteers should have the chance to vote on if. >> reporter: her mom says while
6:09 pm
she personally has reservations she stays voteers should be able to weigh in to prevent more cuts to education. >> i think even folks without school age children could see the immense benefits of public education by extending those taxes. >> reporter: school districts across california are preparing multiple budget scenarios in case the tax extensions are not put on the ballot or are voted down. the california extension of school officials says the best case scenario is a cut of $19 per student. without a tax extension and the ledge could push the cuts up to $1000 per student. >> well, it is already meant increased class sizes. >> reporter: this parent says the education system simply cannot take another round of steep budget cuts. >> it will mean more pressure on the teachers to do more with
6:10 pm
less and i just can't see anything good coming out of it. we have already cut, cut, cut. there is nothing left. >> reporter: and this grand parent grandparent wants a chance to weigh in on the future of education. >> whatever it takes for education they should do it and give us a chance to make the decision not them. >> you think voters should be able to vote on it. >> definitely. >> reporter: as for governor brown he set a deadline of march 10, just two days from now to get an answer from the legislature on whether the special election will be held come june. he needs a two thirds vote to put that on the ballot for special election. with that hold up he is experiencing with some republicans don't know if he will make the deadline but parents are watching it very closely and he is very concerned about what it means. >> thank you, mark. contra costa is gross is growing faster than any county. the county is now home to more

6:14 pm
businesses nearby. mikemike sugerman is joining us to show us exactly what we mean. >> reporter: well, in mission bay and south beach and china basin they were among the weupers winners when the giants took the world series and at the moment they have got to flip down their shades their future is so bright. if you weren't here it would be almost impossible to imagine. china basin last century before 2000 was a place you wouldn't go unless you absolutely had to. >> when we started to build the ballpark, you know, those condo complexes, one was an rv park, other dill warehouses. none of the mission bay buildings were built out. >> reporter: the vice president helped sheppard the building of the ballpark and has seen the changes to the neighborhood as much as anyone before and after and more could be coming. >> i just happened to drive up the 3rd street corridor this morning on the way to work and there isn't a week that i don't see something different on that corner. >> reporter: he owns a restaurant built two years

realize forgiven debt is taxable income. for instance, if you owe 400 grand on a house and the bank sells it for 300 you have to pay taxes on the $100,000 difference. this applies to mortgages, equity lines and even credit card settlements unless it was the result of bankruptcy. there is hope, however, thanks to a piece of 2007 legislation. if the forgiven debt was your primary residents you can file a special irs form that qualifies you for an exclusion but that legislation expires next year. so if you're at risk for foreclosure or need debt forgiveness now you'll want to make sure it is finalized before the end of next year. and if you're looking to save a little money on efiling those taxes, nancy from palo alto suggested we pass along this consumer tip. many don't realize until it is too late that most free tax prep software actually charges you if you want to file a state return in addition to the federal. but if you go directly to the
